CALDERON Posted January 15 Share Posted January 15 8 minutes ago, Mr.Reeee said: Vaughan played as a 10 behind Gullan who was the striker, so John was dropped as a result shuffle I would have been quiet happy with Vaughn to start and Gullan lose his place to John. Are you saying as a player it wouldn't factor into your decision making that you are miles away from your family on a pish wage? Surely a big difference between being along the road from your family and being a bit part player and being in another country overseas and being a bit part player? I know if that was me I would take every opportunity to try and get as much game time as possible to justify the sacrifice, even taking a risk like he did in the dying moment to a) extend the teams lead and win the game and b) force myself into the managers thinking for the next game. I'd also argue the shot was definitely on, the keeper was off his line and it bounced kindly for him but his execution was poor. Let's be honest, John scored and then had a shot from 40 yards on Wed. But for 80 minutes against Queens Park reserves he didn't show anything to suggest he should be starting games in the Championship, nor that he should displace Gullan. We were very comfortable in the game with the players who started, I'd take that lineup over the one that finished the game 100 times out of 100. Re the points around location etc, I don't really see why that should mitigate performance or why that stops a player from doing the obvious thing required to see the game out. When fans start reaching down that far to excuse mistakes then it's clutching at straws time. I was delighted to see John score and I really hope he does well, but let's not pretend that Murray has made some kind of mistake by not playing him more. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
